Yarn Wrapped Blossoming Spring Tree Craft

Oh how I love spring time and watching mother nature spring to life! One of my favorites is seeing trees start throwing out pretty pink and white blossoms. To celebrate the beautiful season of spring we made this pretty yarn wrapped blossoming spring tree craft.

It is perfect for spring time and the yarn wrapping and crunching tissue paper squares works those important fine motor muscles. Did I mention how pretty it is?!

How to Make a Yarn Wrapped Spring Tree Craft

What initially inspired this pretty spring tree craft was coming across this green tones Super Saver yarn at the store. I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures but there is about four different hues of green in the yarn. It’s absolutely gorgeous so I definitely recommend getting some to add some vibrant hues to your craft.

Supplies needed for this spring tree craft:

Instructions for creating this yarn wrapped spring tree

1. Download and print out our tree template. Trace the treetop and trunk piece from the template onto cardstock with a pencil. Then cut them out.

2. Go along the tree top shape with your scissors and cut small slits around the scallop shapes of the cardboard to create additional places to help hold the yarn in place when wrapping.

4. Tape one end of the green yarn onto the back of the treetop and one end of the brown yarn onto the back of the tree trunk. Now wrap the yarn around the pieces in every direction. When you reach the end of the yarn, tape it onto the back of the cardboard.
